Extension and Experiment Station Publications
It can be very challenging to locate information about individual ISU Extension publications via the library website. Quick Search will list the name of the series, but it will not list individual publications within each series. The Parks Library Reference Collection has a List of Current Series, Serial Publications (Series Publications of Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service), published as of March 2004. It lists each publication from 1888-2004 (by title and publication number - and in some cases it will show an author name).

Abstract

The work begun here in 1888 aiming at the improvement o f the sorghum plant as a sugar bearer was continued during the season of 1889 with the results recorded below.

Our mode of work, fully described in Bulletin No. 5, is by selection of seed from those individual stalks found by analysis to be richest in sugar and highest in purity of juice, for future planting.

In this manner there were selected in 1888 from 180 stalks analyzed, ten whose juice showed an average purity of 73.4 with a mean sucrose content of 13.92 per cent., single polarization, and ten more with an average purity of 73.7 and of 13.63 per cent, surcose.

The average polarization for the entire 180 was only 12.10 per cent, sucrose on the juice; purity of the latter unknown.
